Description

Wine tasting, a fishing village and secluded beaches. This coastal tour is a relaxing and mellow way to spend your day in a region of immense beauty just south of Lisbon. This tour includes an official tour guide who will enter all monuments with you and a modern vehicle with air-conditioning.

The Tour
Taste premium wines at a beautiful, historical winery, visit a picturesque fishing village, enjoy amazing views and relax on secluded beaches. Arrabida is a protected natural park, just 30 minutes from Lisbon and is a surprise to all those who visit. The mountain is a magical and enchanting place and this beautiful region expands over the southern Setubal peninsular with towering cliffs, picturesque beaches and ancient ruins dotted amongst the dense mountain vegetation. Founded in 1834 the winery you will visit continues to operate with undiminished passion by the same family. Enjoy a guided tour of the manor house, museum, the beautiful gardens and the ancient wine cellars, followed by a premium wine tasting session. Then we visit Sesimbra; a typical pretty, Portuguese fishing village. Walk along the Marginal next to the beach and taste the local speciality ‘Sour Toast.’ There is also the opportunity to visit Sesimbra Castle and the Maritime Museum of Sesimbra. Then we drive into the mountains where you will admire the most amazing views. We will show you some of the most secluded beaches which feel almost like private beaches! Here you can relax and swim and there is also kayaking and stand up paddle available. Very much a ´slow travel´ private tour so you can enjoy this beautiful region at a slow pace as we travel along the coast.
